We had lunch here as I'm short and struggle with stools at the market stalls 😂. This is a restaurant within the Boqueria market. We had some scallops, sardines and squid. All were decent but about double the price of some other places we've eaten...this week, but it was nice to sit at a proper table and in air con.More

We were nicely handled by Jenny and enjoyed a magnificent dorada and a tasty sepia cooked by the excellent Manat. Highly recommended.

Waited for 10 minutes to be seated (not inside the market, even though there was a free table all the time) Waited another 30 min for anyone to come with a menu. No one did, so we left. Smelled like urine even though I can’t...smell because of COVID.More

Worst service possible. We waited an hour for a burnt paella which we ordered for three people, but was served for two. They didn't even make up with a discount for the disservice

The food was very delicious and definitely worth the money! Portions were big too, and the food was made in front of us by the lovely chef and the helpful girls! As we were sat at the bar we could see the food being made...and everything was kept clean! Simo, the host, was very friendly and welcoming, very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed and ensured great service! Overall great experience, would definitely reccommend!More

Located in the food market, we found this place for a tapas lunch and it didn’t disappoint. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food choice and taste were both great. Thought it was a little on the pricey side for what is after all...a glorified market stall not a restaurant, however, we still really enjoyed the experience.More

Delicious food experience right in the middle of the market. We particularly enjoyed the fried codfish, octopus and the pardon peppers but everything looked great. Good spot for a lunch time break

Tasty seafood, great beer, with prices on the high side, but likely okay with the locals, as the place filled up quickly. Service was friendly, attentive and fairly quick.

Food is simply out of this world. The service is quick and polite. I dare to say that was the best meal I had in our whole trip. If you are in Barcelona, don’t you miss it.

We ate here 5 times in one week because it was so amazing! Our waitress Jenny was fabulous - efficient, friendly and bubbly. She couldn't do enough for us. The food was indescribable - so much so that we plan to return to Barcelona in...Aug 2020 solely based on the many gorgeous fish dishes we enjoyed here in 2019.More

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry

Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
